The Tea Thief: Who Really Did it

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    I love this!
    For a second I thought Tornado was your cat and was bewildered, and then I thought… it must be your youngest?
    So how are Sir John and Miss DriesMore getting along so far? 🙂

      ROFL! I’m so sorry for the confusion. Yes, it is my youngest, the 3 yr old. He is a force of nature. He doesn’t always leave a wake of destrution behind him but when he does, he does it well. 😉
      As for Sir John and Miss DriesMore…if you’ve watched Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, just know it’s a lot like the scene with Lumiere and the feather duster. Every so often I swear I can hear her say (in a French accent no less) “oh no, no, no!” And Sir John saying “Oh yes, yes, yes!”

        Oh Yes, yes, yes!

        I don’t recall that scene. Must not have watched the movie intently enough. I’ll have to remedy this 🙂

        I can totally picture the sort of tornado you’re referring to, I’ve had my own 🙂
